Plugin-container.exe , a virus ?
Today , when i looked in Windows Task Manager , i was shocked to see a new task – Plugin-container.exe . Today a sometime ago , i had a loss of internet connection for about 5 minutes. You could think what would i have been going in my mind. I was thinking , OMG, did some hacker got into my PC. Usually hackers are pretty Intelligent who keeps this kinda Process name so that it is not noticed by normal users. I checked it in many forums , some of them had post that , it is a Malware .
Finally i got into a Mozilla website and found the answer from Support Team . The plugin-container.exe released from the Firefox version 3.6.4 is used in Windows and Linux system to isolate third party software like Flash (Adobe) , Quicktime (Apple ), Silverlight (Microsoft) from Main browser. It does not make you to restart your browser and Tabs . Instead you need to reload only the current tabs for which the plugin crashed. Also they made this feature after seeing it in Google Chrome. I din like this at all. I have faced this problem many times in this week. Usually i open videos which plays for 1 hour and allow it to stream for half an hour or so about SEO from Commission Blueprint and Maverick Money Makers, later when i come to see the video, it would say, the plugin has been crashed. Please reload the Tab. what to do ?
